Since 1999, the EESC has been organising the European Consumer Day where consumers gather to influence the EU debate.
The topic of this year was "Empowering consumers for a more sustainable world". The objective was to reflect on how to give consumers the information they need and how to help them make the best choices when purchasing a product.
Round tables focused on topics such as tech for good, the right to reparability, the functional economy, consumption and health.
The event held both in Brussels and online. It gathered high level speakers and representatives of EU institutions, national governments and civil society organisations.
The aim of the conference is to look at how the European Union can be more active in this area, especially through better cooperation among the key stakeholders. The conference will take place in a hybrid format.
On 1 October the Category will mark its 30th anniversary, with high-profile speakers and round tables. The event is organised in the context of the Conference on the Future of Europe.

At a time when markets are not working as well as they should, inequalities are rising and the environment is suffering, companies can play a crucial role and change the rules of the game. They can do so by putting people and the planet at the core of their model – that is by going back to the humanistic roots of Europe's culture.
